For their third release the Basel centred Fleeting Wax family turn their attention to their chess obsessed buddies, Karpov Not Kasparov. The Bucharest mastermind's Vocal version of Choose Your Colour Gipsy Dark gets the remix treatment from fellow Romanians Khidja, label boss Mehmet Aslan as well as a special collective effort from the artists behind the label. The original track was first created for a fashion show during a protest movement in Bucharest and has gone on to become a favourite for those surrounding the Fleeting Wax crew. In the show the models were women from marginalised gypsy communities who donned outfits from well known Romanian designers. The release adds another layer of poignancy as it brings together again the partnership led to The Mechanical Turk remix which has become an anthem for adventurous DJs worldwide and helped push the heavily eastern influenced sound that is sweeping dancefloors across Europe and beyond. The three remixes build on the spacey, smokey atmosphere of the original, exploring the trippy influences at it's heart. Romanian hardware obsessives Khidja turn in a typically jacking, infectious Chicago influenced remix, keeping things heady with the track's doom laden vocal. Mehmet Aslan's chugging remix brings the seductive melodic flavours of the orient to bear once more on the dancefloor with all the coolness and restraint he has become known for. The first ever Fleeting Wax remix is a spacey, Italo inspired reworking based on airy drums and a constant undulating bass line that tempers the drama of the ascending melodies.

Valeriu Borcos and Eduard Gabia are Karpov not Kasparov, a musical game of chess between synthesizers and drums. Beginning in Bucharest in 2009, the duo soon incorporated an analogue visual artist and contemporary dancers into their live performances, resulting in a theatrical show and a kind of real-time soundtrack to the action around them. The duo’s unique dynamic creates a psychedelic synth-driven sound, combining oriental melodies with the drive of a full live drum kit. “Soundtrack for a game of Chess” is their debut LP, comprising a selection of the best tracks from their previous two EPs, which never appeared on vinyl. “Mechanical Turk”, named after a faux chess-playing machine constructed in the late 18th century, displays the darker side to the band’s undulating sound, as the vintage synth creates a spacey Eastern overlay to the driving bass and drums. There are moments of downbeat jazz-infused introspection, such as the track “Kaissa”, named after the goddess of chess, as well as the ever-onward kraut drums of “Choose you colour gipsy dark” overlaid with the rise and fall of a pulsating synth. Yet the record is not simply a dark synth composition, at times K not K sway towards a more playful, experimental pop sound reminiscent of early electronic pioneers such as Harmonia or Vangelis, while still managing to retain a modern, otherworldly feel. Having garnered great acclaim within their native Romania, their debut EPs also received high praise internationally from sources such as WFMU. While last year, Mehmet Aslan’s re-work of “Mechanical Turk” released on Huntleys + Palmers made waves across the dance floors of the world.
